1920s character and charm radiate throughout this meticulously-maintained and restored storybook cottage. From the street, your eyes are drawn past the mature elm tree and native plants to the arched picture window and inviting front porch. Upon entering the front door, you immediately notice the beautifully refinished original hardwood floors and the tall coved ceiling in the living room where the original plaster fireplace is truly a focal point. The Spanish-inspired styling, unique wall sconces, glass knobs, and built-in features add to the charm and appeal. The bathroom was recently updated with historically-accurate tile work, and space exists within the house to add another bathroom. With over 1,400 square feet of living space, this 3-bedroom home has a very functional floor plan with excellent flow from room to room and from inside to outside. The private backyard has fruit trees and more native plants that explode with color in the spring, and there is a grand Magnolia tree with rope swing over the lawn area. Behind the garage is a separately-fenced edible garden with pathways, trellises, and a compost bin. Not only is there room to add on to the existing house, but there is also room to add an ADU/guest unit by converting the current 2-car garage or adding above it. This location has an excellent ?Walk Score? with easy access to Uptown Whittier, restaurants, local parks, hiking trails, Greenway Trail, library, community center, skate park, groceries, and much more.
